NO, I work hard for my sleeves. I’m a small business owner who earned every sleeve I have, and no one helped me other than the bank giving me favorable loans (used partially for sleeves), my parents floating me cash/sleeve money, and the employees that I underpay (and undersleeve) to get a nice vacation. I’ll be Read more

Yes, shows like Hoarders are built specifically to allow everyone else to look on in abject horror and judge them mercilessly (really, this is the basis for most reality television). Read more

Yeah, yeah, I get it. No true Scotsman would ever call that poor, etc...

I get the sentiment here, but I think it’s more about the gall of a potential employer thinking it appropriate to be talking shit about an applicant *actively during their interview* like a Simon Cowell aside, regardless of if he got caught or not. And particularly the horrible optics of pitying their perceived Read more

He has a flatscreen TV instead of a $10k projector setup? He must be so poor!

He must be listening to all those commentators on Fox going about how all poors still manage to have a flat screen TV and iPhone (which is why they are poor apparently). Obviously he could tell he was poor because the flat screen TV isn’t big enough.

I heard it the way I heard it from the embedded video and clicked-through to the TMZ link described as the director saying he had no reason to apologize, before he apologized for not giving the actor his full attention, presumably after he had been internet shamed. So, the information was all there. You just had to Read more

The repetitiveness is a fair criticism, but the use of blackmail in lieu of powers is working for me (for now). Yea, Vought’s spins can be a little frustrating, but the fact that the Boys’ best weapon against super powerful people and super powerful corporations is the same thing (leverage) speaks a lot to how our Read more

Funny, it seems to oddly be the one most non-Marvelheads had a generally positive opinion of. My brother, for a contributor to the anecdata, watched a Marvel flick here or there but never really watched anything after Phase I. He went to Infinity War on a lark and ended up really enjoying it. He pointed out that the Read more

Not sure if I’ll ever see this. The first one hit me in just the right context - I was graduating high school (like Bill and Ted!), the movie was filmed where I live in Phoenix, and the soundtrack was absolutely stellar late-80s pop rock. Read more

I did my John Travolta list without seeing PF77's, which makes for a useful point: the “Would I be happy if I watched this?” scale is inherently subjective: Read more

That comes down to a philosophy of what you want grades to mean. Opinions vary.

The one you like, where you use grades to rank order students on a normal curve of expected grades, is decidedly old school and in my opinion, dickish. I signed up for a calc class once where the prof was practically salivating telling us ho Read more

well i also think not all c+’s are created equal. a c+ for a prestige drama definitely veers more to ‘you tried’. Read more

To me a C is a “well, at least you tried” grade. So I guess this is “well, at least you tried, plus.”

Not failing (for movies), but certainly doesn’t put one on the list of films I will take the effort to seek out. C+ is basically “this is a movie. It’s OK.”
